ALPHA at Oran Park ... Join the Adventure
Alpha is a tool for evangelisation that is being used by thousands of Catholic parishes around the world to introduce people to the first proclamation of the Good News of Jesus Christ, otherwise known as the Kerygma: “Jesus Christ loves you; he gave his life to save you, and now he is living at your side to enlighten, strengthen and free you” (Evangelii Gaudium, 164).
Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that explore the basics of the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment. It is a parish tool for evangelisation based on welcome and hospitality, sharing and prayer, all in the midst of a caring parish setting. Each session includes a meal, a talk, and small group discussion, where no question is too simple and no answer is pre-packaged.
Alpha explores many questions such as: Is there more to life than this? Who is Jesus? Why did Jesus die? How can I have Faith? Why and how do I pray? Why and how do I read the Bible? How does God guide us? How can I resist evil? Does God heal today? What about the Church and telling others?
